about it. but have you played lindsay graham's message on sunday on cnn when he said that the republicans did not have a plan and their main focus was to deny everything criticize everything that the president has tried to do. that's their whole focus, just like the last four years was to deny him a second term. now it's to criticize and deny everything that he does. and why would you manufacture a problem? and another thing, this transportation person, why didn't you get the real man? maybe you did get ray lahood? host: we heard from ray lahood in his briefing to white house reporters on friday. keith is a reporter from the hill and covers transportation and that's his specialty. can you reflect on the comments that she had especially in relation to when the cuts kick in and when will they be felt? guest: there is a disagreement about that. and the cuts that they're talking about now are from the 2013 budgets. the agencies would have discretion on how to distribute those cuts and just would have to make these reductions across the board if the sequestration is implem
